A much needed podcast!
Pastor Matt Perkins has an extraordinary perspective on all the dynamics involved in developing people in the areas of Worship Arts. I am so very fortunate of working along side him and many other fine men of God who challenge us to live a life of excellency. His insights on how relationships, technology, politics and theology interact in building God's kingdom is fresh, relevant and above all things; anointed.
One of my favorite podcasts!
After graduating from college and starting my first ministry job a few months ago, I started listening to several different podcasts to help ease the learning curve. One of my responsibilities is leading worship every week for a new young adult ministry at my church. I started listening to the Leaders in Worship podcast to shed some insight on this area of leadership. This podcast has been incredibly helpful and has been beneficial for a variety of areas within my ministry role. I recommend for every pastor, lay leader, or anyone responsible for a ministry in a church to make this one of your top five podcasts. It's always refreshing to listen to, gives my heart new insights, and keeps me focused on why God has called me to ministry and the tasks that He has given me to do.
Really insightful. Great to hear from other worship leaders…encourages and shifts perspective.
Just plain refreshing!
